Keep the smaller or bigger yellow tang?

Wish I could keep both but that'll mean 1 less fish from another species that I could keep. Smaller one is about 2.5" and the larger one about 3.5". The larger one will make a better "centerpiece" for the time being but might be an issue if I want to add another tang later on. The smaller one will more likely submit if the new tang or fish is slightly larger.

To be honest, I don't think it will matter in the long run which one you choose.

Tank size, what tangs are involved, swimming room, food, flow, aquascape, etc will determine how it goes.


Current Tank Info: 125 in-wall , 40b sump. 6 bulb T5. ASM G2 skimmer. LPS and leathers

1 health
2 color (usually associated with health)
3 size smaller is better in my way of thinking.

I’d keep whichever one I had the longest.

If they both get along, I would keep them both. Upgrade the tank later.
